April 16, 2013, 5 PM: showdown time.

To my left (North?): KIM Jong-un, 9,495,000 active and reserve personel, over 5,500 tanks.

To my right (South?): PARK's army. That's PARK Jae-sang, a.k.a. PSY, also showing some legs, but on YouTube: 86.716 M views, 943,660 likes, 169,662 dislikes, and 438,265 comments for his latest video "Gentleman".

To referee the clash, John KERRY and XI Jinping, a.k.a. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy:

"KIM Jong-un? We take him very seriously!"

As we go to press (some lemon for the tea), PARK seems to be leading the bout: both he and KIM opted for the low road in distasteful and disappointing repeats, relying on deja vu marketing ops instead of proving to the world they were capable of doing things differently... but Weapons of Mass Destruction are a harder sell than Weapons of Mass Diversion:
